In their biggest matchup of the season thus far, the Baltimore Ravens delivered with a signature performance. The Ravens poured in 38 points against the Lions while allowing just six, totaling over 500 yards of offense and scoring five touchdowns.

Any time you average 9.1 yards per play and possess the ball for 30+ minutes, good things are likely to happen. There were almost too many highlight moments to count from Sunday afternoon, but let’s run through some of the top ones.

Check them out below and vote for your choice for play of the game!

Zay Flowers 46-yard reception: On just the third play from scrimmage on the Ravens’ opening drive of the game, Lamar Jackson and Flowers hooked up for another big play. Flowers got open across the middle of the field and Jackson lofted a pass over two defenders, dropping it right in the bucket. The dynamic rookie wideout took it from there, gaining nearly 20 more yards after-the-catch.

Nelson Agholor 12-yard touchdown reception: Facing a third-and-short just inside the Lions’ 20 yard line, Jackson evaded multiple sack attempts and made magic happen. He rolled to the right and delivered a pass to Agholor in the end zone just before multiple defenders closed in on him. Agholor created separation late in the play to get open and coralled the throw for a touchdown, which gave the Ravens a two-possession lead late in the first quarter.

Mark Andrews 11-yard touchdown reception: On the eighth play of the Ravens’ 92-yard scoring drive in the middle of the first half, Andrews cashed in from 11 yards out. Jackson, rolling to his right, dished a pass to his tight end, who turned upfield and stretched out to break the pylon. This impressive effort turned a two-possession lead into a three-score advantage for the Ravens early in the second quarter.

Gus Edwards 80-yard reception: Following a fourth-and-goal stop by the Ravens’ defense, Edwards made the biggest play of his career in timely fashion. The “Gus Bus” took a two-yard pass from Jackson and turned it into a whopping 80-yard gain off a catch-and-run. Edwards got open after the linebacker bit on a rush attempt towards Jackson, which left nothing but open grass behind him.

Mark Andrews eight-yard touchdown catch: Two plays after Edwards’ long gain through the air, Andrews found paydirt once again in the red zone. This time, Jackson found him over the middle of the field, where he made an impressive high-pointed catch against solid coverage. This score broke the 30-point threshold for the Ravens as their fifth touchdown of the day overall. It was Andrews’ fifth touchdown of the season, too.
